A virtual town hall is planned in Fort Nelson next week to discuss FortisBC natural gas rates.

The company says it is applying to the BC Utilities Commission to integrate its Fort Nelson rates with the rest of its provincial customer base "so all customers pay the same rate for natural gas."

"We’re actively upgrading our natural gas infrastructure in Fort Nelson to continue to deliver safe and reliable energy to our customers. Delivery rates for Fort Nelson customers have been increasing to cover the upgrade costs," the company said in a public notice.

"As these upgrades continue, the costs are covered by approximately 2,400 customers in Fort Nelson. By merging Fort Nelson into our larger customer base, the cost of these upgrades will be spread out over a million customers."

The town hall is scheduled for Tuesday, April 27, at 6 p.m.
